Last year, the culture, sports and tourism sector successfully realised strategic directives, resolutions, programmes and planning in the fields of culture, family affairs, sports and tourism, contributing to fulfilling yearly targets. Its activities resumed following social distancing period caused by COVID-19 pandemic, promptly serving political task and meeting public demand for culture enjoyment. It also presented dossiers to the provincial People’s Committee to seek recognition of four relic sites as provincial-level historical-cultural sites, held five provincial-level sport tournaments, and eight others in collaboration with sectors and mass organisations. It partnered with the Vietnam Sports Administration to successfully organise two national bicycle motor-cross races, recruited and trained athletes to 15 regional sport tournaments. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tourist arrivals and revenue strongly fell. The province welcomed 1,980 visitors, or 60 percent of the yearly target, down 40 percent year-on-year. The total revenue reached 1.475 trillion VND, or 59 percent of the yearly target.

The sector’s 2021 key task is realising the Resolution of the 17th provincial Party Congress for the 2020-2025 tenure and action programmes, including pooling resources to build cultural-sports institutions, paying attention to sport training, and upholding values of national cultural heritages in combination with tourism development.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Toan spoke highly of the sector’s efforts last year. Despite the serious impacts of COVID-19 pandemic, the sector still maintained a stable growth, contributing to ensuring local social welfare.
